Motley Crue Final Tour STHLM

The chilling words of horror/legend/actor Vincent Price voice echoed out over the audience 
-Leaving lepidoptera - please, don't touch the display,little boy, aha cute! Moving to the next aisle we have arachnida, the spiders, our.. finest collection.This friendly little devil is the heptothilidi,unfortunately harmless. Next to him, the nasty licosaraptoria, his tiny fangs cause creeping ulcerations of the skin *laugh*. And here, my prize, the BlackWidow. Isn't she lovely?.. and so deadly. Her kiss is fifteen times as poisonous as that of the rattlesnake.You see her venom is highly neurotoxic, which is to say that it attacks the central nervous system causing intense pain, profuse sweating, difficulty in breathing, loss of consciousness, violent convulsions and, finally.. death. You know what I think I love the most about her is her inborn need to dominate,possess. In fact, immediately after the consummation of her marriage to the smaller and weaker male of the species she kills and eats him - *laugh* oh, she is delicious.. and I hope he was! Such power and dignity unhampered by sentiment. If I may put forward a slice of personal philosophy, I feel that man has ruled this world as a stumbling dimented child-king long enough! And as his empire crumbles, my precious Black Widow shall rise as his most fitting successor!

Following "Black Widow" Alice Cooper launched into "No More Mr. Nice Guy"
A guitar shreedin, hair-spinning Nita Strauss
You'd gift wrap a leper
And mail him to your Aunt Jane
You'd even force-feed a diabetic a candy cane
You can go to Hell
Alice Cooper gets strapped onto a giant operating table and disappear in a cloud of smoke with sparklers and explosions going off and a giant Alice Cooper Frankenstein monster emerged and  prowls the stage mouthing "Feed My Frankenstein" lyrics.
Alice Cooper is put in a straitjacket by nurse rozetta in "Ballad of Dwight Fry," as the song builts to a climax Alice Cooper yells "Don't touch me!" and starts to strangle nurse rozetta with the sleeves of his straitjacket.
Nurse Rozetta escapes the stranglehold and stabs Alice, leds him off to the guillotine during "I Love the Dead," 
The executioner holds Alice Coopers severed head

Nightwish Stockholm

Richard Dawkins (professor biologist & writer) voice echoed out and curtain dropped and pyro flared to the sound of "Shudder Before The Beautiful", Floor and Marco shared the vocals during  "Yours Is an Empty Hope"The beautiful "Ever Dream" followed.
The powerfull operatic "Wishmaster" sent the audience into a total frenzy. The celitic influenced "My Walden" took us into a bass solo that emerged into "The Islander".Troy Donockley stepped out to the stage with Uilleann Pipes for "Elan" 
Dawkins' narration started "Weak Fantasy",New/Stand in drummer Kai Hahto (ex. Wintersun) did a tremendous job all through the concert, impressive. Kai Hahto and keyboard player Tuomas Holopainen showed their skills through a battle into "7 Days to the Wolves" fans shouted - "we were here" during "Alpenglow"
When the catchy and energetic"Storytime" ended, the piano opening for "Nemo" got the crowd on their feet and the fantastic "Stargazer" got them to scream their lungs out before "Sleeping Sun" captured the audience.
Floor did an outstanding vocal performance during the amazing "Ghost Love Score"  Floor climbed onto a heightened section of the stage while bursts of smoke surrounded her, Floor hit those majestic notes, it sent shivers down my spine and almost brought tears to my eyes.
The Imaginaerum album cover rollercoaster/theme park was showed on the screen during "Last Ride of the Day" The haunting piano piece by Tuomas alone on the stage started "The Greatest Show on Earth" Floor joined with operatic vocals and the screen showed nature and evolution to match the lyrics.

MANOWAR Gods & Kings STHLM 2016

Legendary american director Orson Welles voice echos through the arena 'Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome, from the United States of America, all hail, Manowar!

Manowar took stage with their eponymous track followed by a heavy version of "Die For Metal" before a  glorious "Call To The Arms" got the audience on their feet, a majestic version of "King of Kings" with singer Eric Adams at the top of his game. "Lords of Steel" sounded good live (in opposite to the horrible sound/production on the album)

"Kings of Metal" got the crowd screaming Manowar Kills! the band sounded great in the the mighty epic "Gods of War" highlighted by the vocal prowess of lead man Eric Adams who  was nothing short of phenomenal. Manowar  showed  a video entitled Fallen Heroes dedicated to individuals who had passed that had influenced Manowar, photos of  Dio, Lemmy  and former Manowar drummer Scott Columbus drew loud cheers from the audience.
A thunderous "House of Death" got the  audience into a frenzy. Manowar launched into "Dawn of Battle" (a brilliant underrated track,  only released  on EP). "Hail and Kill" sent the crowd into a full metal fury  chanting Hail and Kill!


The encores was a heavy  "Warriors of the World" and a blistering "Black Wind Fire & Steel" 


H8TEFULL EIGHT ultra panavision 70mm

Quentin Tarantino's post-Civil War Western "The Hateful Eight." is hauntingly beautiful in  glorious Ultra Panavision 70mm  and a must for true cinephiles.


A stagecoach that contains bounty hunter John Ruth (Hang man) and fugitive Daisy Domerge  hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. Racing  towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth will be brought to justice. They  encounter Major Marquis ex. union soldier turned bounty hunter and Chris Mannix a renegade/self proclaimed sheriff, they all take refuge in Minnie´s Haberdashery during the snow blizzard. In the Haberdashery they are greeted by four unfamiliar characters...


World Premiere! Nekrodelirium - Grief

Premiere! Nekrodelirium - Grief

Seeing Ghosts on Friday 13th

The now infamous eerie intro song "Masked Ball" (by Jocelyn Pook from the film Eyes Wide Shut) echoed out over the smoke infested stage and burnt incense coated the entire venue with a distinct smokey scent before Ghost launched into "Spirit" followed by "From the Pinnacle to the Pit" and  a "Ritual" got the (sold out) crowd on their feet.
The ceremony continued with a frantic "Con Clavi Con Dio" followed by the satanic melodies of "Per Aspera ad Inferi" and a heavy "Majesty".
Papa Emeritus III brought out the nuns for a communion  during "Body and Blood" 
A Haunting "Cirice" captured the crowd before "Year Zero" sent them into a Frenzy
"He is" went into a super heavy metalic "Absolution" and "Mummy Dust" appeared.
An excellent acoustic version of "Jigolo Har Megiddo" was performed and a electric 
Ghuleh/Zombie Queen took over. A chilling "If You Have Ghosts" sent chivers down the audience spines and it was time for the "Monstrance Clock" that ended the cermony.
Last words:
No "Elizabeth" was performed?
Ghost still doesn´t perform their magical version of ABBA´s "I¨m A Marrionette" live?
A Ghost version of Alice Cooper´s - He´s Back (The Man Behind the Mask)  the theme song of Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives would have been a nightmare come true.

Tarantino's favorite Swedish actress returns

Lugnet - "It Ain´t Easy" Grindhouse/Horror the sequel to "All The Way" Grindhouse 

Featuring: Christina Lindberg "Thriller: They Call Her One Eye" 



Alice Cooper Gröna Lund

"Hello Horray" Alice Cooper walks through a sparkling glitter rain to greet the audience. Backed by a glorious three-guitar army featuring Nita Strauss (a worthy new replacement for ace ax shredder Orianthi) 
Alice Cooper sets the "House of Fire" to prove he is "No More Mr Nice Guy"
fueled by three electric guitars, bass and drums.
Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss "Bite Your Face Off"
During “Under My Wheels”  Alice Cooper non-verbally instructed the guitarists to out-shredd each other.“Billion Dollar Babies” saw the frontman working with a fencing-sword that had billion dollar novelty currency lining it which he shook off for front row souvenirs.A sarky version of 'Hey Stoopid' proves a great sing-along.Drummer Glen Sobel let sparks fly, firing flares from his drumsticks during "Dirty Diamonds."
Alice Cooper stabs a paparazzi with his microphone stand he´s should also stab the person who tought it was a good idea to play four tired cover songs after each other?  Why not play some songs from the highly underrated albums "Constrictor"  and "Raise Your Fist and Yell" instead? songs like "Life and Death of the Party", "Gail" and "Roses on White Lace".
Alice Cooper  "Welcome To My Nightmare" sporting a real, live boa constrictor wrapped around his neck like a scarf and showering it with kisses. You can "Go To Hell" when Alice Cooper does a stunning version of "He´s Back (the man behind the mask)" that became a #1 hit in Sweden (theme from the motion picture Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives)
Giant frankenstein Alice Cooper coming for you..
During “Feed My Frankenstein”  Cooper was strapped into a guerne, electrocuted and through the smoke, emerged as a 15 foot version of himself. A “naughty” nurse appeared during Ballad Of Dwight Frye to administer a syringe to a straight-jacketed Alice, as the song built to a climax, Cooper yelled "Don't touch me!" and tried to strangle the "naughty nurse" with the sleeves of his straight-jacket. But the "naughty nurse" stabbed him in the legs and he was led to the guillotine. The beheading was followed, by the track, "I Love the Dead," as the executioner held his severed head aloft, eventually french-kissing it.
Cooper returned, head intact, to bring the concert to a climax with "School's Out," featuring a mash-up with Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall." When the show ended Alice introduced his band and his actress, introducing himself with "Playing the part of Alice Cooper tonight, from Phoenix, Arizona, me."

Ace Frehley Gröna Lund

 Ace Frehley kick off with a storming version"Rocket Ride" against a wall of Marshalls that pilloried the stage."Gimme A Feeling" and "Toys" from his latest album was next before a menacing version of the brilliant "Parasite", "Love Gun" followed with drummer Scotty Coogan (Nikki Sixx Brides of Destruction) providing Paul Stanley-esque vocals. Ace Frehley looks sharp and appears to be  enjoying this new chapter of his career.
Longtime Frehley’s Comet bandmate, Richie Scarlet shined when he took center stage on classics like “Breakout” and “2 Young 2 Die,” which he dedicated to the memory of former Kiss drummer, Eric Carr.
The great autobiographical “Rock Solders” from Frehley’s Comet got the crowd into a frenzy with their fists flying in the air, the dark and heavy "Strange Ways" was sung by the bass player Chris Wyse (Cult, Ozzy) after a seriously wicked, bass solo with dirty riffs and melodic finger tapping."New York Groove" got the audience clapping and sing along."Shock Me," led into a smoking guitar solo - literally.
Ace Frehley was on fire and his playing was totally on point, nailing every solo. "Rip It Out" and "Deuce" ended the set. Ace Frehley could have skipped the KISS songs he didn´t write and played more of his own fantastic tracks like "Gold Gin", "Talk To Me", "Into The Night" and the title song from the criminally underrated album "Trouble Walkin`" that just been released again, remastered with a 16 page full color booklet, rare photos and new linter notes.

Sweden Rock Festival 2015

Children of Bodom hit the stage with "Hate Me" and following it with great version of "Needled 24/7".We got top-notch musicianship as well as the first gig for Antti Wirman, keyboard player Janne Wirman's younger brother who is the replacement guitarist for  Roope Latvala who quit the band just days before SRF.
C.O.B. Halo of Blood album has been universally hailed as a return to form for the band
Battle Beast took a grip of the audience with their chest pumping metal anthems.Nooras range hitting the high notes of Rob Halford with equal parts grace and ferocity. She visits a softer range as well (“Black Ninja”), which exposes a vulnerable side and also a natural contrast. "Far Far Away" followed by highlights like "Out on the Streets Again", "Let It Roar" , "Enter the Metal World" and "Out of Control". The icing on the cake would been if the performed their excellent cover of "Push It To The Limit" from the Scarface movie.
Noora got the crowd really fired up during 'Black Ninja' and it provided her with another opportunity to show off that powerful voice.
It was a day at the office for Def Leppard who didn´t even used their own stage set. They used  three background screens with the most horrific cheap ass computers animations of all time and they are the headliner? We were promised an all hits show and got crap like "Paper Cuts","Promises" and "Rock On".
"Foolin´" , "Rocket" ,"Switch 625" , "Rock of Ages" and "Photograph" made it a little better, but still they don´t play the best Def Leppard song of all time "Gods of War"? 
It was almost painfull to see how Def Leppard was totally steamrolled over by the next act who should have been the true headliner.
It´s cold the clock has passed the midnight hour, suddenly you feel a chill as the now infamous intro "Masked Ball" (Eyes Wide Shut) echoes out over the festival. Out of the fog on the stage appears five men in silver devil masks they start to play "Genesis" followed by the new song "From the Pinnacle to the Pit" when Papa III takes the stage. With the new song "Majesty" Papa III has the audience in trance following his lead.
Papa III had the audience cry for "Absolution" and brought satanic bliss to the crowd.
Papa III accent recalls Floki´s accent (Vikings TV Series)
Dokken kicked into high gear with "Kiss of Death. The set featured songs that spanned the bands extensive career, hits like “Dream Warriors”, "Into The Fire" and “Breaking The Chains.” Nice to see ferocious drummer Mick Brown back and Mark Boals "Yngwie Malmsteen singer" on bass and backing vocals. The only downer in the set was the dreadfull song "To High To Fly" that turned into a boring blues jam, Dokken could have played so many more of their fantastic songs during that time. Afterwards we went to the merch table to find out that they had no Dokken merchandise at all?
Mötley Crue brought the party with fire and brimstone and their own impressive stage set.The show stared with a fitting "Saints of Los Angeles" during "Wild Side" the female backing singers/dancers appeared for the first time and they would return throughout the show with diffrent outfits. "Motherfucker of the Year" fit surprisingly well in the setlist with all the classics, during "To Young To Fall In Love" Crue got the groove going. Despite Vince Niel can´t hit all the high notes anymore the party in the front rows (that contained more females than men) continued going all through the show. Motley Crue framed the show with an impressive pyrotechnic display.
Sixx used his bass as a flamethrower to set his microphone on fire and spray flames towards the lighting rig. 
Saturday started with a bang when Frantic Amber roared through their setlist, based on their debut album "Burning Insight". When Frantic Amber played their latest single "Soar" the audience started to participate and sing along from there on it was a homerun the crowd grew more and more after each song they performed.
Riot is a legendary name in the  metal scene with a career spanning almost 40 years, their crowning achivment is1988s Thundersteel. In 2012 Tragedy struck and founder and guitarist supreme Mark Reale passed away, the band continued onward under the Riot V moniker with the blessing of the Reale family/estate.. Riot V opened the set with classic "Narita" followed by "Ride Hard Live Free" (from the great "Unleash the Fire" album) new vocalist Todd Michael Hall (Jack Star’s Burning Star) soaring, powerhouse vocals was truly amazing and took "Fight or Fall" to a new level. Riot V performance was one of the best at SRF 2015 and their new songs like "Metal Warriors", "Take Me Back" fit perfectly with the classic and the finish with "Thundersteel" melted the audiences faces.
Ace Frehley drew a large crowd and was firing on all cyclinders, a great show, with high energy and rocking versions of both Ace's solo and his old KISS songs. Ace seems a lot happier and healthier than he has been in a while, and his guitar playing sounds better than ever. The Ace Frehley band was tight and each member had their own moment to shine. 
Kicking off the show, guitarists Zoltan Bathory and Jason Hook tore through the unforgettable  "Under and Over It" frontman Ivan Moody stalked the stage with an unmatched intensity and demanding full crowd participation during the charismatic  track “Burn motherf*cker.” Moody told the audience that guitarist Jason Hook got his picture taken backstage with his guitar hero Ace Frehley.The cover of "Mama Said Knock You Out" felt totally out of place and the audience went silent and just waited for the trainwreck to be over."Burn It Down" saw the band steamroll SRF. It was the national day of Sweden and 5FDP helped the audience to celebrate it by displaying a swedish flag on stage that was brought by the audience. According to a swedish newspaper 5FDP had a bigger audience than the headliner Judas Priest
Judas Priest open the set with "Dragonaut" from the latest album Redeemer of Souls (a album with horrible production and to many songs that doesn´t hold the JP standard) a forgetable version of "Metal Gods" and a half/half version of "Victims of Changes" and then another song from Redeemer of Souls "Halls of Valhalla" with a chillin version of "Love Bites" Judas Priest is back on track. We get treated with two more songs from Redeemer of Souls the title track and "March of the Damned" it´s a mystery that they didn´t play the best song from the Redeemer of Souls album  "Battle Cry".  "Jawbreaker" and  "Painkiller" stands out as the best songs of the show. 
Halford paced around the stage with newfound energy and drive,changed outfits frequently.The stage set was disgraceful with Judas Priest standards they used the same stage set up as Def Leppard with three background screens showing the worst cheap ass computer animations ever.

World Premiere! Frantic Amber - "Soar"

In 2014 professor Stephen Hawking predicted that the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race...


Dethklok is an extremely popular and successful death metal band, described by their adversaries, the Tribunal, as the "world's greatest cultural force." The band's fan base includes billions of metal fanatics, who frequently endanger themselves to watch the band perform live.

Dethklok experienced a rapid increase in commercial success, and quickly became the biggest and most successful band of all time. Their wealth and power allowed them to have their own headquarters, Mordhaus, as well as an entire army of roadies, called Klokateers.


Dethklok is managed by Charles Foster Ofdensen. The band's actions have caught the attention of an Illuminati-style council, known as The Tribunal who secretly monitor their actions.

Nathan Explosion

Lead vocalist and "lyrical visionary" of Dethklok. He always speaks in a very deep, grave voice, known as a death growl, even when not singing in public. He is a tall, imposing figure with long jet black hair, black fingernails, pale skin and green eyes. When performing on stage, he sometimes wears corpse paint. 


Skwisgaar Skwigelf:

The attention and respect he receives as the world's fastest guitarist has resulted in a great deal of pride. Skwisgaar has a personality that is more arrogant, haughty, and uptight and is a classically airheaded character.He possesses stereotypical Swedish features, such as wavy blond hair and greenish blue eyes, and the typical elongated Nordic facial structure -- a high forehead, long nose and pronounced cheekbones. 


Toki Wartooth:

Toki has a distinct whisker-like style of mustache known as the Fu Manchu, has light brown hair and very pale blue eyes, often found in those of Scandinavian descent. Toki has a personality that is more naive, innocent, and good-natured than the rest of the band, though he may share their love of metal and brutality, sometimes more than others.


 William Murderface:

Murderface has brown hair, lime green eyes, a heavy lateral lisp and a diastema, as well as tattoos on his stomach which state "Pobody's Nerfect" and "This Mess Is A Place." Despite outwardly being the angriest and most violent member of Dethklok, Murderface is arguably the most sensitive and insecure. Murderface is an alcoholic, as he would rather cut off his penis than admit that "booze ain't food". He regularly throws tantrums when he is frustrated or annoyed, which has resulted in several destroyed bass guitars.



The percussionist for Dethklok and formerly the singer and lead guitarist of Snakes N' Barrels. He is a native of Tomahawk, Wisconsin and is of Irish descent. He has red hair styled into dreadlocks and a combover, green eyes, and a very strong North Midwestern accent. Pickles's surname is unknownAlthough generally calm and casual most of the time, Pickles builds up a lot of anger at things and is very quick to lose his temper when things don't go the way they're expected to. Though he is often the most mature and experienced person in the band, he can also be the most cynical, sarcastic, and jaded in attitude.

Grindhouse trailers feat: Christina Lindberg

Lugnet "All The Way" Grindhouse Trailer (Part I)
 Lugnet - "It Ain´t Easy" Grindhouse/Horror Trailer (Part II)
Christina Lindberg achieved her most enduring cult cinema fame with her outstanding performance as Frigga, a much abused and traumatized one-eyed mute, who exacts a harsh retribution on her tormentors in the brutal and controversial revenge opus Thriller - A Cruel Picture (1974) banned by the Swedish film censorship board.
Thriller was a groundbreaking Swedish grindhouse film from the early 1970s which rose to notoriety in the 2000s as the primary inspiration for American director Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill movies. “I love Christina Lindberg,” Tarantino said in 2003. “And that’s definitely who Daryl Hannah’s character is based on. Thriller is, of all the revenge movies I’ve ever seen, that is definitely the roughest. The roughest revenge movie ever made! There’s never been anything as tough as that movie.”
